Courage, confidence, and character: honoring 111 years of Girl Scouts in America

Join the Fun with Kentuckiana's Unicorn Parties

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Girl Scouts across the country are celebrating National Girl Scout Week in honor of the Girl Scouts’ 111th birthday.

The Girl Scouts of America have been around for over a century, with generations of women dedicating their lives to helping their community.

Our local Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana chapter especially takes pride in their troops’ scout-defining traits: courage, confidence, and character.

Longtime Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana volunteer Ginny Pfohl said that to celebrate, “Each troop chose a country and presented to the other troops present about what Girl Scouts and girl guides are like in that country. And so just really celebrated the togetherness of being part of a very large organization.”

Interested in getting your little one involved? There’s no better time than National Girl Scout Week.

The Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana chapter is hosting local Unicorn Parties over the next few weeks. Here, parents, you can give your pre-k and Kindergarten age girls a first fun glimpse of the organization and get any of your questions answered.
